Vlog coming back

I didn’t think anyone would miss my daily vlogs when I stopped a couple of weeks ago.  I was bloody stoked to receive a few messages asking me about why I stopped.

I will start the Vlogs again from Monday 23rd.

 

Thank you everyone who watches and who reached out to me and asked me about it. Means the world.

Vlog on hold

Just going to stop my daily vlogs for a little while as I focus my time on other things.  As I mentioned on my Train Smooth podcast that I upload my  training on this website, I will upload all my training including key session details on this site once a week.

I will also over the next week or two make a few changes to this website so I can create content for cycling and runners as well as triathletes.

Weekly Round Up (25th – 1st July)

Summary of my training week

It was a very up and down week with regards to training as I had Jack’s All Schools Cross Country race to attend and Anara had her 13th birthday and a group of her friends had a sleep over

 

Here is my training week:

On tops of this, I also completed 

  • 2x Oxygen deprivation sessions
  • Meditated once for 20min
  • 3x Mobility sessions
  • 3x Foam Roller

 

Target 

I have started playing around with a new metric that I am calling “Target” that I give each day a score.  The idea with this (this is week two of developing this so I may change it as I go) I score each day on if I am moving closer to my target goal or away.

The score numbers are:

1 – Step backwards

2 – Neutral

3 – Step Forward

The idea is to get a 3 in each day and to have a weekly score of 21 out of 21.  Depending on a number of things, will depend greatly on the score.  In this past what would

I might go into more information on a blog post just about this concept.  Anyway I get myself a 18 out of 21 this week.

 

 

Book I am currently reading

I finished reading “Mark Cavendish – At Speed” this week.  Not a bad book… Not a good book either.

I find in the past few years, the only books I enjoy reading are pro cycling books and American mafia books.  A few years at it and I am running out of things to read.  I am not a big fan of Cavendish but was keen to read something

#43 All Schools Cross Country

My son had a 2km cross country race today against kids from all around Tasmania.  After this we went to the pool to cut some laps and in the afternoon, I had to coach soccer.  I was going to do a run session at night after my daughter’s 13th birthday dinner but as most of the kids didn’t turn up to the cold and wet training session, I turned this into my speed run session to kill two birds with one stone.
